It's Canada's hundred-and-fiftieth birthday, and Ottawa's throwing a party! Not just any party - a nationwide, year-long celebration of everything that makes this country worth celebrating!  But a party this big needs a personality just as big to run it, and nobody's bigger in Canada than Mark Armitage, much loved and admired actor-director-producer-writer-actor (wait, we said that), hand-picked by the Prime Minister to make sure that July 1st, 2017 will be a day unlike any other day in this nation's glorious past, present or future! There's just one problem, which Mark and his crack staff soon discover: how do you throw a birthday party for a country that doesn't want it?
